>> Almost any gamer these days has a decent internet connection, the amount of people effected by this are minimal.
1 - not all "gamers" want to game online 24/7.
2 - In X years time when the servers are gone and the game you spent X years playing and enjoying becomes utterly worthless - try fishing out that disc in 30 years and reliving those memories!!
Why are the above so hard to understand for some people? I'm guessing this is the xbox360/PS3's gernation who never really new what offline gaming was all about.
*sigh* ... I'm off to be abused by the above on WOT... i need some more nerd rage.
So you buy your 35 tons of "Computers" log off - and when you log back on next week ..... the market has crashed and your trade route is no longer profitable.. and your stuck with a worthless cargo...

Re: The Spiral of Deaaaath!
And who told it aeroplanes can fly at Infinity height? (or zero for that matter)

Re: top-spec PC
"Radeon 7000 series" .... me thinks they mean "Radeon HD 7000 series"
Not sure you can get a "Radeon 7000 series" with more than 128MB ram ... and 64 was the usual...
I replaced an iPhone 4s screen/digitiser for < £50 at around 18 months ago (6 months into an 18 month contract!) i would call that pretty shiny at the time and far better then a an £200 Apple repair cost (at the time!).
The phone has since then been traded in / upgraded for an iPhone 5 and accepted for £250 cash back...
Shop around and you can get a decent deal on spare parts.
Re: The point is
No, but you can replace the "battery" ... *sigh*

If your running windows 7 then just install SUA... (SUbsystem for Unix Applications)

GW are trying to assert the trademark in that area (ebooks)- which is really quite sad.
The Paper print version of the book is still (or was yesterday) available on amazon for sail.
